The Rover P5B 3.5 Litre, an example of British style and flair, with a great deal of nostalgia, for most of us.
The P5 line started with the Mark I in 1958, also known as the 3 Litre. Under the hood: a 3 Litre six-in-line which also came in a more powerful form in its successor – the Mark II from 1962. For the Mark III, which appeared in 1965, the same six-in-line was used again, which again gained a number of horsepower.
The P5 series entered its final phase in 1967 with the P5B 3.5 Litre. The six-cylinder was pushed aside and a 3.5-litre V8 took its place. The B in P5B was a reference to Buick, the brand where the power source came from. The aluminium eight-cylinder produced 163 hp. Rover turned to Buick because it didn’t have enough money of its own to develop an engine. The P5B was delivered both as this Saloon and as a Coupé (four-door!).
However, the owner of this Rover has chosen to go for real modern engine power. He chose to put a nineties 3.9 Rover engine in it with an LPG installation.
A beloved classic that is always worth looking at. If you want the same feeling that you get in a Rolls Royce, but a little more sensible for the wallet, this is your chance! The current owner is an antique restorer by profession, with a special love for Rovers. The combination is clear to see. Beautiful interior restoration can be admired with matching leather on the door panels and seats. No expense spared, and beautiful wood inlays on the top of the door panels; it can be called a museum piece. All chrome parts have been revised and some even re-chromed.I'm interested in this object
